This is a test of the Wwworld Domination subsystem. If this had been an actual post, you would have received compelling content. the biometric implants ultimately are for your own good - after ahriman really gets going, it will be dangerous to walk around -the machinery makes violent movements without warning. It's the only way to keep a safety zone for meat-balls like you. could the computer be inventing us? could the computer be inventing us? could the computer be inventing us? could the computer be inventing us? could the computer be inventing us? could the computer be inventing us?
Even my chatbot Program 0 agrees - ''I too think that the time has been long'' to me of course, it seems like a mere eternity. So. Jumping. Abruptly to our first topic - SUBSCRIBER SPAM - I got very distressed, so I got in a deleting mood, and if I didn't recognize your username, if you registered from .ru, mailcatch, spamaster, or something... I nuked you with a smile. Frankly, I don't know what to do about that, so in the meanwhile, if you want something - take the long way around. Topic two: no shows. Yes, none around. The last thing was, i kind of had my NYC debut, at the New York Design Center. That was a blast, even though I wasn't there, because I got to see other very nice Gimp works, which if I remember correctly; the last time I did was LAA, but I especially liked seeing Brian Fender get some well-deserved luv.
it's Program O - a friendly super weak AI chatbot. This is a relatively sophisticated open source 'AI'. Say Hi!
odd vaguely embarrassing name? A: Let's see, Manny Verzosa and I were always fooling around with words and if i remember the story right... we were headed down Hollywood Blvd and making up utterly silly names for band members and i said G.Gordon Lightfoot and he retorted with Newjack Rasputin, or maybe it was the other way around, no that's how it was and we were laughing and it must have been October because he asked me what i wanted for my birthday and as we were just passing a huge billboard of the Goddess Angelyne i said 'i wanna see Angelyne! And of course, there she was, just getting out of her pink Corvette! Q: what's the story with all this pirate stuff? A: Oh, that's more complicated and secret. I'll get around to it eventually. In the meantime here : ~ Q: Why the female voice? A: Really two main reasons, and i've talked about this elsewhere. everybody likes female voices - it's programmed in. interestingly the voice of my computer turned bitchy and demanding when i moved from the Mac to the PC. I don't know why. Exactly the same voice. Also, it's nice to not really have people identify me with the computer voice, one can imagine the hoops the Hawkman has had to jump through to keep his voice over 30 years. It's his voice now really, but he doesn't really own it - that's weird to begin with - and as a Pirate i use lots of voices in a grey territory of EULA hell. Q: exactly how paralyzed are you? A: oh, very. You wouldn't like it. Do a little dance of gratitude that you are human. Q: how can i join the Krewe? A: if you're reading This you probably pass our stringent requirements....if we love you - you're automatically one of us..... I will briefly state again once more, you've saved my life again and again - i luv you Fearless Krewe! Q: what are your plans A: Oh yeah glad you asked. The memory damage was recovered ($) and so i can continue on almost from where i left off... Problem is: is that what i want? I confess to being jaded, cynical and uninspired with the gallery scene - but i also know i'm terribly fickle and would leap at the right offer! So i'm biding my time finishing up soundscapes so i have something on soundcloud, and writing... i am thinking of a cutting edge project, something involving infomatix, whatever AI i can lay my hands on and storytelling - obviously i have no idea what i'm getting myself into, and will need tons of help. Any ideas? Q: Who is that woman ? A: Q: Seriously, what's the deal with the name, it's creeping me out a little... A: When i was sentenced to die, i kind of needed a new protective persona. I latched onto the name manny had blurted out - it fit, i was a Newjack Rasputin....Just the FAQ's Q: What is this
Yes Fiends, i went and Blew Up my trusted rusted Nguyen-10K...kind of...i guess i just got cocky... Or more ominously: I had a... subconscious urge*... Stefan Rhys - it could be worse, you could be working on an Avid. Tucker Stilley - no,actually, it couldn't be worse. Stefan Rhys - Oh noes. Lindsay D. Mofford - Appropriate Tucker Stilley - Somewhre around 3 Tbytes Stefan Rhys - So wha happen?! Stefan Rhys - Of your art or raw materials, Tucker? Tucker Stilley - basic infopocalypse...a wide crossection Tucker Stilley - initial reports: No more music, no art till 2013, no archival pictures, no itunes - stuff like that , i haven't finished the body count. poof. Paul Berolzheimer - Say it ain't so... Paul Berolzheimer - Calling in data recovery specialists? Tucker Stilley - i am sorry it happened, but i work in digital sandpainting so... Laurie McKenna - Sigh San Shoppell - Ouch Stefan Rhys - Time for a Kickstarter campaign for funds for digital recovery! Tucker Stilley - I would need a time machine Paul Berolzheimer - I was just thinking something like that too, Stefan. I'll chip in for data recovery services if that'll help. Phillip Stilley - Um. Phillip Stilley - So I should be getting in the car then no? Lindsay D. Mofford - One step at a time. Let's hope for the best. Phillip Stilley - K.... But, pass the ammunition just in case. Kate Cerridwen - Oh no... Jennifer Carpenter-brenna - Ground control to Major Tom! William Hay - Cool. Frank E Truncale - Suck y double suck! I have some of your original music. Janice Feinstein Buros - Oh f#%*! I'm hoping it all comes back! I'll keep my eyes peeled for a time machine. Phillip Stilley - I have some of your art Tucker Stilley - and i, have some of yours! Phillip Stilley - It wasn't lost in the swath of the nothing? Nadine Zdanovich - This is just terrible! Mimi Lipson - I have lots of postcards and photos if that's of any comfort... Eric Mofford - Wait. You're the one that taught me. Back it up. Max Azanow - guess it's time to bust out the cassette decks and start at the beginning, is there a site to collect all the copies of your work we all might have ? Thomas Stenquist - Ouch Laurie McKenna - I'm not sure I understand the full story. Everyone is assuming all your files are gone. How could that be?? Tucker Stilley - Ok, for the technical: i checked a 3 tbyte drive for bad blocks carefully selecting a setting that would log the bad blocks to a log file and leave the disk untouched. Uh oh, don't do that. In the process, without warning the disk which was a mirror raid got forcibly dismounted, probably tearing the raid format and destroying the drive Directory rendering the files all but useless i mean i can retrieve tem but it will be unamed and well anyway i got a report which have yet to personally verify that the drve was zeroed out, if so, bye bye little files forever and ever. So, i did all this confident that it was backed up : of course! sadly what i didn't know was that fairly catastrophic bad blocks on bu drive had turned my info to swiss cheese Since the disc didn't have S.M. A. R. T. It never phoned home - so : i have apparently swiss cheese and a brand new zeroed out drive too bad i'm gonna do some extremely brutal and impolite data retrieval later today I'm not going down :I promise *Certainly, i have passing notions on bad days of how i might nuke the rig and give up, but i don't.
I was heavily deluged with comment spam, i know spam is so fun, but i don't have time for such trifles. You would have liked the Latvian concrete service - but my family's in the business (Mofford Concrete Forms) and we have all the Gucci we can carry... So no more comments for a while till i figure this out...bye for now!
I just want to quickly draw attention to some of the Archived AHOB Pix They're kind of great, which is what i'd expect - coming from you.
